GROSSE POINTE SHORES, Mich. — Ford's luxury Lincoln brand is continuing its reinvention with a new small SUV. Lincoln plans to unveil the MKC at an event Wednesday in New York.

It also has lights that automatically turn on when the driver approaches. The MKC is the second of four new vehicles that Lincoln hopes will revive the brand. Small luxury SUV sales are up 25 percent in the U.S. so far this year. The MKC starts at $33,995.
